The first Melodica release of 2012 will come from mysterious production duo 1Blip2. The duo want to keep their identities secret, that's why we're using a picture of a dog in a mini mini. Anyhow, the music, a euphoric blast of Balearic techno, is so good it speaks for itself.
This is the first release on Chris Coco's new label, Melodica.
The a side features Scottish folk artist Samantha Whates doing her best to sound like the ghost of Astrud Gilberto and the clinking of ice in glasses of a rather lovely Italian rosé for inspiration and general good vibes. It's a song about needing to get away, a plea to a lover at the end of a relationship, it's highly personal and extremely universal, like a good alternative pop song should be.
